How To Get Well

Monday, October 26th, 2015

Don’t know what’s wrong and not sure where to turn for expert medical advice and treatment?

If you have a serious chronic condition, it may help you to know that it will take time to reverse a process that has developed over many years. There is no quick fix or magic bullet available for most chronic degenerative disorders. It takes a physician like Dr. Singer to apply good, scientific medical knowledge to help the healing process begin.

Maybe it’s time to visit Dr. Jonathan Singer, one of the pioneers in combining traditional medical care and natural treatments at his health care clinic in Denver, Colorado.

GMO And You

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Another big misinformation problem I’m seeing in posts has to do with GMO. After all, aren’t you a GMO?

People are just fear-mongering these days. Years ago, burpee did a bunch of stuff right in Bucks County … with the lima bean. [He basically resurrected the lima bean which is one of the more nutritious uses of land]

I’m not saying there aren’t risks with GMO’s. I’m saying there needs to be a reasonable debate about the risks —…/40e4fd58-3132-11e3-8627…

I’m also saying — in order to make an educated statement on growing food, one should grow their own food. if someone is that afraid of GMO’s, don’t grow them… but don’t force your unfounded views on others.…/genetically-modified-foods…

Traditional Medicine

Friday, August 29th, 2014

The World Health Organization definition:
Traditional medicine (TM) refers to the knowledge, skills and practices based on the theories, beliefs and experiences indigenous to different cultures, used in the maintenance of health and in the prevention, diagnosis, improvement or treatment of physical and mental illness. Traditional medicine covers a wide variety of therapies and practices which vary from country to country and region to region. In some countries, it is referred to as “alternative” or “complementary” medicine (CAM).

Traditional medicine has been used for thousands of years with great contributions made by practitioners to human health, particularly as primary health care providers at the community level. TM/CAM has maintained its popularity worldwide. Since the 1990s its use has surged in many developed and developing countries.


Medicinal Plants

Monday, November 25th, 2013

DESPITE INCREASES in the production of synthetic drugs, natural plant drug materials are still economically significant in the united States, and large quantities are harvested in the southern Appalachian region each year for medicinal purposes. A 1962 survey of 328,599,000 new prescriptions written in the U. S. showed that 25 percent were for drugs from natural plant products. However, during the past 30 to 50 years, fewer and fewer people have been harvesting wild lants in Appalachia, which is the principal American source, mainly because of families emigrating to more prosperous areas. Between 1950 and 1960, the southern Appalachian region lost through emigration more than a million people, nearly a fifth of the population. Increases in local blue-collar employment opportunities, a growing reluctance to work in the fields and forests, scarcity of some plants because of over-collecting, and land-use changes have also reduced the natural plant harvests for drug materials.

To locate, collect, and prepare plants for market is time-consuming work. Some collectors do not know all the useful plant species and the best markets for them. This manual was prepared to help collectors identify, collect, and handle plants, plant parts, and pollen.

Not all the plants listed are marketable at all times; so the collector would do well to write to one of the collecting houses listed (table 1) for prices and information about market demand. Buyers of such material are helpful in providing other useful information on collecting.
